    Is Confoam Vector included in the 1.175 or is it going to come later as an add-on. I am running on 1.170--It looks to be time to down load new new upgrade Designer. Would you agree?

    Ok so the worm is on the hook and has been dangled out in front of us with the conform vector feature. From what I've been able to pick out of this is that it is not an active feature in the upgrade but will need a code to activate it. Right?

    If so what is the guesstimated cost of the new feature?

    Question? If you buy a PTN or find one on the forum that was made with the Conform Vector feature, do you need to own the code to use the Pattern?

    Hi Floyd,

    Yes, it will require a license similar to STL, DXF, etc.

    I believe the official release/price info is forthcoming very soon.

    Michael,
    Thanks for the verification on this.. this should add an all new feature for the machine and looking forward to using it..

    Side note: Had a great visit (several in fact) with John Cockrell. I know he sure missed meeting up with you in Az last month. Thanks for sending him my way!!

    Additional note: John Cockrell,, Had a great visit (several in fact) and I know he sure missed not being able to connect with you on your trip to AZ.. Great guy to visit with and thanks for sending him my way..
    Yes Sir!

    I sure wanted to meet John in person, but his travel schedule didn't match up with mine this time. Glad you got the chance to have a visit! You're right...he's a great guy.

    No, because if someone created a pattern with the Conform Vector incorporated in it (something I never even thought to try out), the entire pattern would automatically be converted to a regular raster carve.

    Of course, if we're talkin' CenterLine Text in a Carve Region, a raster carve isn't going to be nearly as neat or nice looking as a true vector carve.

    Conform is a kick.. Curved routs for guitar frets is now possible!!! not to mention inlays using wood binding and colored epoxy..
